Dempsey's Punch NOT IN IT WITH THE WALLOP OF ALEMITE. [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 2 July 1921
Deupw's Ptticfe NOT IN XT WITH THE WALLOP OF ALEMXTE. Dempsey has a punch, so the sporting experts tell us, that regis ters around oOO pounds: Quite a wal lop, one would opine. Scarcely pleasant to have 500 pounds sudden ly forced into one's abdomen or landed squarely against one's nose. Five hundred pounds — nearly three times his own weight. Quite a puncnt * However, there is one article used by the motorist, who kriowst that registers a 'punch of just about 250 times its own weight. Refer ring to the Alemite lubricator. That little hydraulic pressure valve, weighing around two pounds* delivers a 'punch' that registers 500 pounds — as heavy as the blow put across by the heivy weight cham pion of the world — thus proving that, although man is a remarkable machine in many ways, a manin vented machine can be made still more remarkable. Two pounds of metal can be made to deliver the same amount of energy as 185 lbs. of man. Jack Dempsey uses his 500 pound blows to conquer his foes — a...

The Motor Car Calk and Coats The Essex [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 2 July 1921
CIk motor Car J?e«, Che €$$ex If those scions who labour so in dustriously during the sessions of legislative bodies for the enactment of measures to Impose all kinds of burdensome taxes on motor cars, to which they so frequently refer as 'pleasure' vehicles (says a Parisian . paper) should take note of the divers uses and the tremendous scale on which automobiles are now oc cupied in commercial and industrial pursuits, they might change' their line of procedure. An interesting example of the growing popularity of the motor car* for business purposes, where the ability to cover a wider range or territory' speedily is a prime requi site, for instance, has just been pro vided by the Stockton divison of the National Cash Register Com pany. This division now uses Cocky: 'This one will do me. The engine seems all right, aud the tyres are not bad.' Salesman (trying to sell more expen sive car) : 'But don't -you ever consider the flnish?'

FEDERAL SERVANTS! What the —? A TOPPER FROM WITNESS [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 2 July 1921
fBHAL SERVANTS! win m — ? a imn fmn wiihi 'Scrutator': The Federal Service has at long last reared itself on its hind legs in connection with the re moval of the 5 per cent- allowance, and have actually prepared a mon ster petition to be presented, pray ing. etc.. that the allowance shall be given back to them. What inno cents these officers must be, to be sure. Do they really think for one minute that a petition, however bulky, will carry any weight or alter the opinions of the 'hoodlums' who are at present in charge of the 'tart shop'? Do they think that their measure and the amount of 'grit they have got is not known to the powers that be? Certainly it is, the heads and politicians have got them nicely weighed up, and have the firm conviction that there isn't a kick in them. What the ? is the good of a petition in this case, anyhow? The only tiling that would be understood by the present soulless, grabbing lot in power is an 'ultimatum,' no matter whether it is the 5 per cent, gr...

Sister Ligouri" [Newspaper Article] — Mirror — 2 July 1921
' Sister MfHri ' The daily press for the last couple of weeks has been daily handing out small doses of news relative to 'Sis- ter Ligouri's' action for £5000 dam ages against Dr. Dwyer, Bishop of Wagga, N.S.W. 'The case will be heard to-morrow,' says the 'West'- one day. 'Mr. Justice Wade won't hear the case; he's too busy,' 'The Oose' says the following momne. The 'Westf' says that 'Jtlstice Fer guson will* hear it,' one day, and next day 'He won't.' The follow ing day 'He will, and on Thursday last it prognosticates the show to start at any minute. It s hardly understandable why such anxiety should prevail in cer tain quarters jto give this sorry affair undue publicity.

It is confidently expected that the Bishop will' be able to convince 'the six good inen and true' that he had every good reason to protect a sim ple soul f...

'The Mirror*' draws the attention of its readers to a particularly ob noxious state of agairs that has recently been brought under our notice in connection with the mis use of certain public property which, from all points of view, is discre ditable to the people concerned, and deserves the severest censure on those responsible for its occur rence. On last Monday morning the Prince's Railway Car was very gen tly hitched up at the Central Sta tion to the Bunbury train. In the excitement of seeing' ourselves away, we hadn't time to notice who occu pied the coach, but we -merely con tented ourselves with the thought that His Excellency the Governor, together with other members of his staff, Cabinet Ministers and the like, were off on one of their usual jaunts to the country. We noticed, too, on the trip, how very gently the train pulled up at stations, and how very, very gentjy, the train sarted off again. At Picton, the train w...

BOXING ? O ? THE CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE WORLD. JACK DEMPSEY MEETS GEORGES' CARPENTIER. Some say the fight for the Cham pionship of the World is Brute Force v. Science. With the American in the first role, and of course the French idol in the second. Maybe, that is so. We are told how Demp sey with a terrible heart punch will send Carpentier to the boards quick and lively Others teU us how the Frenchman's marveUous footwork will render all the American's rush ing work null and void. There are only two starters, yet the 'winner is noi easy to pick. Thejr do say that the betting is 3 to 1 on Dempsey. Locally they say it, and that is all. A few lines about the two boxers should be interesting. Jack Dempsey, the present holder of the title of Champion ot the World, who is twenty-six years old, was born in U.S.A. His weight is given as 13.6, and his height just a fraction under 6ft. As stated previously his great asset is his ability to hit hard — very hard, and most of his victories have be...
